IUPUI launches new institute on artificial intelligence
IUPUI is launching a new research institute that will take an integrative approach to the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence technologies, programs and applications. The Institute for Integrative Artificial Intelligence at IUPUI will capitalize on a rich interdisciplinary tradition and create an environment for the discovery of new and innovative approaches and applications for AI.
The mission of the institute, set to launch in early June, is to act as a catalyst for the promotion and coordination of AI and AI-related research activities at IUPUI and beyond, and to develop major research initiatives for high-impact AI technologies and applications.
"The continued growth and advancement of artificial intelligence as a pervasive element in our society is altering how we go about our daily lives," said Shiaofen Fang, interim dean in the School of Science and a professor of computer and information science, who will direct the new institute.
"AI is impacting every sector in direct and indirect ways, offering countless opportunities and posing significant challenges that require new and radical approaches -- particularly multidisciplinary approaches, which is a focus of this new institute."
